WHY NO MORE PREBUILTS?

Postby InfamousMitsuhide » Mon Jan 28, 2013 10:22 pm

I started to doubt alteil's direction again when I heard that you guys are discontinuing pre-builts and card of the week. I mean, both of these have received many positive reviews and are one of the best ways to pinpoint cards. Its driving me nuts that alteil is eliminating ways for players to pinpoint cards when the problem most paying players face is the RNG. Why are companies cutting features players actually like?

b/c prebuilts lost alteil money but again, alteil chose to sell prebuilts for 500 gran during first week only so everyone who wanted theirs bought it in the first week.

Last I checked, there's no financial incentive to create more.

If you sold them for enough gran you could make money probably. The 500 gran sale decision was probably a mistake in hindsight.

People like to focus on this tactic as the faulting point, when really it's a long term and short term financial loss.

Actually, that's a claim that you have no data to back up. It's very possible prebuilts offered for enough gran will result in more sales.

You're right, I'm using information Logress offered to me. I don't think prebuilts with the current model would improve sales for Apocoplay, it might function differently in an environment with an Auction House.

All regular sales still suck because nothing has changed in the shop.

When better sales like Black Friday arrived, it seems nobody bought the regular crap and everybody bought the better sales.

When Pre-builts arrived, everybody bought the better sales and once again ignored the regular crap.

Perhaps the problem lies with the regular crap and if the landscape changed as was promised, but still undelivered, maybe it would be possible to reintroduce the pre-builts.
